I read this inspiring article in the Independent earlier this week:
Hiking with cancer: The final frontier At 23, Tom Buckley has been told he has only months to live – yet he is braving the bitter weather to walk right across England. He tells Jonathan Brown why he has set himself this last, gruelling challenge: http://www.independent.co.uk/life-st...r-1057829.html Kind of puts things into perspective, doesn't it? Have been following his daily progress at: http://www.justgiving.com/thebuckers From the daily diary entries, it sounds like he had a really rough day yesterday and wouldn't it be great if he comes back today to find some donations and messages from OM members! http://www.justgiving.com/thebuckers
Good on him well done Tom .
As we speak (ok i type) my wife is with her sister getting some news from bone marrow doctors at Pendlebury children's hospital,as my nephew too has Cancer in his leg/shoulder/eye.
It astounds me just how brave these kids can be (from 1 month old upto 16 on his ward) faced with such an uncertain future.
Hope he fulfills his challenge well done Tom mate .
Tom has finished his walk.
Well done mate .
Trevor, sorry to hear about your accident, i had my back broken in 2 place in a car accident, & spent 6 weeks in hospital. I have 2 big plates and 8 bolts holding it together. But I dont think I could deal with thebig C
Just for the record i have emailed tom and asked if he wants to pop in and say hi at some point if he is upto it or if he fancies it. .
Would love to hear all about his challenge.
